Guest Post: Design Shuffle

Today I’d like to introduce you to Joanna from Design Shuffle. Since we just recently finished painting our hallways, I’m happy to have her here at Withywindle today talking about decorating hallways!

Hi, I’m Joanna, a writer for Design Shuffle, an online resource for interior design ideas, designer portfolios and design trends and news. I’m passionate about gorgeous interiors. Luckily, I get to spend my days collecting the most beautiful images of interior designs and writing about them on blogs such as Withywindle. Thanks for letting me share!

Hallways take you between spaces, welcome you from an entrance, and provide a space to comfortably go from outdoors to indoors. Whether you choose to make a hallway like a whole other room or just a passageway, there are many ways to make it fit your needs. Below are some of my favorite hallways, hopefully they will give you some home decorating ideas of your own.

Hallway Decor

Don’t you just love the stone floor that meanders through this entry? Warm wood accents brighten the space while global artwork enlivens it.

This is one hallway I have adored for awhile. The striped walls draw you into the space and into the rooms beyond. Soft white furnishings keep the palette calm so as not to compete with the busy stripes.

A modern version of the traditional mudroom, this welcoming space is relaxed with its rustic palette of green and wood finishes.

While this hallway’s got a busy vibe, the fretwork wallpaper is toned down a bit by a rustic wood floor. The bicycle gives a fun touch.

Filled with lovely decorating ideas, this Asian inspired hall offers a wide walkthrough and a wall of storage to love. The warm buttery-hued runner leads the eye to the room beyond.

I’m in love with this hallway. It invites you to grab a seat and read a book for a bit, doesn’t it? It’s a creative way to add a library to a home without requiring a whole room.

Artful and dramatic, the chair says it all in this little hallway corner. The old world finish on the walls creates a warm, aged feel.

Brilliant turquoise is the star of this stunning hallway. This space definitely inspires some interior design ideas. Doesn’t it just make you wonder what is beyond the door?

Thanks for joining us on Withywindle today Joanna!

What do you decorate with in your hallways?

I posted about the hallway in our old apartment here, but I can’t seem to figure out what to do with our narrow galley hallways in this house. That will have to be another thought for another day!
